The Three I’s of Hiring: A Guide to Spotting Top Talent

We all know that building a high-performing team is no easy feat. It requires a keen eye, an instinct for spotting potential, and a knack for uncovering those diamonds in the rough. That’s where the Three I’s of Hiring come into play: Integrity, Intensity, and Intentionality. These essential qualities can make all the difference in finding that perfect match for your company.

Trading Job Flexibility for Stability During Tough Economic Times

Let’s dive into an important topic that impacts many of us: job stability in today’s economy. In a world that glorifies flexibility, it’s time to explore the often-overlooked advantages of good ol’ fashioned job stability.

The Importance of Job Stability

Listen, I know we live in an era where freedom and flexibility are held up on a pedestal. We’re bombarded with messages telling us to pursue our passions, work when and where we want, and embrace the gig economy like it’s the key to eternal happiness. But here’s the reality: job stability is the backbone of a thriving career in the modern world.

In a constantly fluctuating economy, having a stable job provides you with a solid foundation for growth and financial security. It’s like constructing a sturdy house on solid ground instead of building a treehouse in a turbulent forest. With job stability, you can plan for your future, confidently pay the bills, and even

Eye Candy

“Dad, why do they have Hooters girls at their booth?”

“They bring them in to draw attention and a crowd.”

Attending Truck World today, after a decade in the industry, it is clear to me that the event is not the same as it has always been. Personally, I think the industry as a whole has made a pivot. But what is it, and will it last? Truck World is one of the best places to take in the industry from a granular perspective. You see the new technology that is coming in. You see the new players who are showing up and the old ones who are still around. Truck World introduces drivers to companies who need them and gives the general population an invitation to an industry that could change their lives.

As a 14-year-old, it was the best way to take in everything that transportation had to offer. Yet, my biggest takeaway was that the

The Three III’s of Hiring

INTENTIONALITY. INTEGRITY. INTENSITY.


A long time ago in London Ontario, a little boy was a rugrat of a child. Running the streets of his small farm town with the other hoodlums around the neighborhood. He would take his dad’s car for joy rides, hitchhike across the US, or get fired from every job he had. 

However, as time slowly passed on this little boy turned into a man. He moved to the United States to meet the love of his life and began a family with two amazing twin boys and later, a daughter. The rambunctious nature of his youth was slipping away as bills began to pile up and his family’s needs formed before him. A family to take care of. To protect and guide. 

As Dave’s career continued to morph and the children continued to grow, he knew that starting his own staffing service was his next best opportunity. As the business grew along with his

Gen Z and the Hierarchy

Understanding how to Get the Most from Gen Z in the Workplace.

If you want to get a Boomer to do something – Tell them to do it!

If you want to get a Gen Z to do something – Give them a bonus!

If you want to get a millennial to do something – Take a picture of them doing it and post it to Instagram.

If you want to get a Gen Z to do something – Tell their mother it needs to be done and she will do it!

As sad as it is, people are still trying to figure out how to get Gen Z motivated to work.  Here is the thing, it is not really all that hard you just have to understand where they are coming from and work to meet their greatest need.  This means we need to go back to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs

The Waves


“No, I am not looking for help with staffing right now, we are laying everyone off because of Covid.”

“No I am not looking for help with staffing right now, we are in a skeleton crew at the moment.”

“No, I am not looking for help with staffing right now, we are still trying to bring back staff from before our layoffs.” 

“No, I am not looking for help with staffing right now, we are trying to stay on budget to compensate for some Covid losses.”


THE GREAT RESIGNATION 

All Employees are MIA…


“YES! I am looking for help with staffing right now! I am trying to hire an XYZ and I can’t find one anywhere. “

The Recruitment Process

Some of our customers have experienced the process of recruiting themselves either because they do some of their own hiring or they tried to fill a role before reaching out to us. However, lots of our customers only use agencies and don’t really understand the method behind the madness. So many people think about the recruitment process and assume it includes posting an ad and interviewing a few candidates and while yes, we do post ads and interview candidates there is so much more behind the scenes than you would expect.

The Evolution of Recruiting

Recruiting is not a new game, but we are definitely playing by new rules. Year over year recruiting continues to evolve and change. 30 years ago it was as easy as placing a sign outside your building that read “Help Wanted.” 20 years ago the process involved newspaper ads and a quick interview but now with the way that technology has evolved the entire recruitment process
